After about 24 hours of frustration, I give up! My computer (Dell laptop Inspiron 640m running XP home edition 5.1, SP 3) has contracted a virus that apparently slipped through TrendMicro. I get weird websites popping up, freeze ups, slow performance, etc. etc. TrendMicro scan says it removed PAK_generic.001, but after I run the computer and it freezes up, it seems to come back, along with other viruses presumably removed (torjan.vundo). I can't do a system restore - the computer just blinks at me. I can't load Kaspersky, or Malwarebytes' Anti Malware. Get the same message: "the system administrator....etc."
I can run the computer on safe mode with internet access -- so far at least. Help!
